A Super Duper New Year!!!

2011 has been a great year for us at LRDP...
I am extremely pleased to announce that through my portfolio as a wedding photographer, i have been accepted and offered a place in the University of the Arts, London to pursue my postgraduate studies in Photojournalism.

After 5 years as a wedding photographer, it is really time for me to explore the true meaning of Photojournalism. My work in wedding photography have touched the lives of the couples i photographed. It is now time for me to seek a larger audience and challenge myself out of my comfort zone.

2012 will be a brand new and exciting year for us. We will be moving our base to London and in celebration of our big move, we will be offering a super attractive package for Prewedding in London. All you need to do is pack your bags and get on a flight and we will be ready for you. So stay tune on our blog for more details!!

We would like to sincerely thank all our couples for their support and
to all people we have met through the course of our work..
we would like to wish you a Super Duper Happy New Year!!!

Guess who i saw in this wedding?! :) Our 2009 couple, Lawrence & Grace.. :)
It is no small world though.... the groom, Alfred is actually Grace's brother.. Time really flies and it is such an honor to once again be part of this family wedding celebration..

What a great way to end the season with the wedding of 2 lovely people, Alfred & Jin Ming...
We had a great time working with the couple, meeting old friends and they have some really nice and friendly relatives too.. making the otherwise tiring day so much more enjoyable and fun... :)

Gavin & Ashley Wedding Day...

The Ricoh GRDIV...

I've been thinking of getting a "serious compact" camera for awhile now...
and as a DSLR user of both Canon 5d MK1 & MK2, i am used to getting excellent quality pictures.... So when it come to a compact camera there is no exception... it has to at least match the capability of a DSLR...

I have been doing a fair bit of traveling and will be traveling even more in the coming months... Having a DSLR is definitely useful... but the weight and bulkiness just turn me off (it's just reminds me of work) :P... so i decided to get a smaller camera...

Leica is way out of the question with its astronomical price tag... So the next best thing is the Ricoh flagship camera, GRD4... With a fast 28mm len of f1.9... the GRD4 is able to handle situation that even a DSLR may find it challenging.. n yes... it may not have the dynamic range of the bigger sensor camera... but image quality this compact produced is rather pleasing..

Of course there are better camera out there... but i am happy with the Ricoh GR Digital4...
at least for now!! :)

Photo taken with an Iphone 3G (another excellent compact camera)...

Gavin & Ashley Wedding Xpresshighlight...

It had been a long & exhausting day... having to churn out the Xpresshighlight within that few hours is never easy... n having it done just in time to get to the hotel... there was really no time for a break... As stressful as it may be... it is rewarding to know that your work is much appreciated and well received by the couple and audiences.. :) It is also a pleasure working with Gavin & Ashley... a motivating factor to push myself further to the limit... :)

However, it is not all smooth sailing though... i was rather disappointed that the person controlling the laptop during the screening of the Xpresshighlight decided to skip the opening page and end credit of the video... It is not the lost of advertising opportunity that i am upset with but rather the due credit an artist deserved for the every effort he had put in to create that very masterpiece... So a lesson learned.. from the "School of Hardknock"... always give clear instruction to have it play from beginning to the end...

Nevertheless, I am glad that we were able to meet the couple expectation... n like i always said, working with such lovely people just make your job so much more enjoyable... :)

Check out the "Full Version" Still+Motion Xpresshighlight of Gavin & Ashley Wedding Day... :)

Do stay tune for more images from this lovely wedding!! :)
